Brightcove Announces Financial Results for First Quarter Fiscal Year 2017

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Brightcove Inc. (Nasdaq: BCOV), the leading provider of cloud services for video, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

"Brightcove reported mixed first quarter financial results with revenue in line with expectations but non-GAAP EPS below guidance primarily due to a revenue mix shift and unanticipated one-time costs associated with a large client's impending OTT service launch," said David Mendels, Chief Executive Officer of Brightcove. "In addition, while we had strong year-over-year bookings performance in the quarter, we experienced a significant and unanticipated decrease in our revenue retention rate, among media customers, primarily due to changes in the market for the non-software elements of content delivery and storage."

Mendels added, "Despite this challenge, we are optimistic that we will return to double-digit revenue growth in 2018, as we benefit from the positive impact from our bookings momentum and execute on a multi-faceted product and pricing strategy that will improve our revenue retention rate. We believe we are at the early stages of a multi-billion market opportunity with media and digital marketing and enterprise customers who are finding new and innovative ways to leverage their digital assets to improve business performance. We remain confident in our ability to achieve our long-term financial objectives, which we believe will create significant value for long-term shareholders."

Merger-related expenses include fees incurred in connection with closing an acquisition in addition to fees associated with the retention of key employees.
